Automated Electrical Engineering, Design, and Construction Management

Aeries CARS™ is a database driven electrical design and construction system that delivers streamlined automation to every step of the process. Our software, which was originally developed and owned by GSN Technologies, LLC, is used to design and construct complex, industrial type facilities while enhancing productivity during the pre-construction engineering and design phase, streamlining design team collaboration, and reducing wasted time and materials on the job-site.

 

 At Aeries CARS we are focused on providing high-quality, automated solutions for electrical cable design; that's why we work in concert with all major 3D Plant Design Systems. Our suite of programs is targeted to the automation of electrical design and construction management. All of our applications operate together ensuring that when data is entered once, all affected documents are updated.

Throughout the design/build process of an electrical system, multiple roles are involved; there's the owner, the engineering team, the electrical contractors, estimators, an electrical design team, and the construction hands that install everything designed at the facility itself.

The table below represents some of the more powerful automated processes of the Aeries CARS software suite, the pain-points eliminated for each of these roles by the automation of that process, and the deliverables that are created to assist these individuals in a seamless turn-around from one phase of the project to the next.
